It’s that time of the year where anonymous folks around the NFL give out their opinions on certain players making their way into the league.
That brings us to former Ohio State QB Justin Fields.
During an appearance on the Pat McAfee show on Wednesday, Dan Orlovsky shared some disturbing anonymous quotes from people about Fields heading into April.
“Last guy in, first guy out.”
“I’ve heard there are some questions with Justin Fields’ work ethic.”
“Where is his desire to be a great quarterback?”
Orlovsky’s answer on Fields:
“One, I have heard that he is a last-guy-in, first-guy-out type of quarterback. Like, not the maniacal work ethic. I’ve even heard it compared to Justin Herbert, where it was like, dude, when Justin Herbert showed up, he was like a psychopath when it came to working and get ready for the draft. Or even at school, like, “Give me more, I want to work non-stop.” And I’ve heard that there are issues with Justin Fields’ work ethic.
The second thing is … Where is his desire to go be a great quarterback? I think that there’s a desire to be a big-time athlete, from what is expressed to me, but where is his desire to be a great quarterback? And to be great, you gotta be willing to find the things that you are not good at and just freaking grind on them.”
Fans were not happy with these quotes and left various comments showing their displeasure:
Fields won the Silver Football award as the Big Ten’s most valuable player in 2020. As a sophomore in 2019, Fields was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.
During his two-year OSU career, Fields threw for 5,701 yards (68.4 completion percentage) with 67 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
His single-game effort in a Sugar Bowl win over No. 2 Clemson solidified himself as a top QB prospect when he battled through a rib injury early on the game and threw 22/28 for 385 yards and a whopping six touchdowns.
